Hush Puppy Meatballs

Yield 24-36 meatballs

Meatballs are best with a mixture of pork sausage and ground beef.













Ingredients:

Meatballs-
  • Equal amounts of each: I used 1/2 pound of each.
    • Ground Pork Sausage
    • Ground Beef
  • 1 cups crushed Fritos brand corn chips (1 cup for every pound meat)
  • 1/2 onion diced small
  • 1/2 green bell pepper diced small
  • 1 egg (1 egg for every pound of meat)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Goya Adobo 
  • 1/2 tablespoon cracked black pepper
Breading-
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • cracked black pepper to taste
  • 3 slices of onion diced/minced small
  • 1/2  cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream


Directions:

Mix all meatball ingredients well.

Shape into balls of desired size. (I formed 12 balls and made the rest into meatloaf to freeze.)

You can cook them in a fry pan on the stove top, or you can bake them at 400 degrees F in the oven. I fry mine usually.

Cook meatballs until surface is browned and meatballs are firm. (about 15 minutes stove top, 15-20 minutes oven.

Remove from pan and allow to cool on paper towels.

In another bowl, mix dry ingredients for breading well.

Mix wet breading ingredients in a different bowl.

Add wet ingredients to dry, stirring until completely combined.

Roll each cooled meatball into batter to completely coat each one.

Drop into hot oil in a deep fryer.

Fry until golden brown and puffed.

Drain on paper towels and serve hot!
